Weekend of 4/1/2022

SOUTH JERSEY — Greetings! It’s good to see theatre is back and going strong in southern N.J. after the wicked pandemic. I was in two shows that fell casualty to Covid, “The Boys in the Band” and “La Cage aux Folles” — but my loss pales in comparison to everyone else’s. I’m healthy, employed, here, and joyous to be living back in South Jersey for the first time in nearly a decade.

Here’s what’s playing this weekend:

GODSPELL — Cumberland Players (Vineland). April 1-9. Stunning new production. I reviewed it Wednesday night. Follows the gospel of John with a litany of wonderful musical performances. Stars the Blandino brothers, Aaron and Phillip, as Jesus and John/Judas respectively. 

THESE WALLS — Eagle Theatre (Hammonton) April 3. Told two decades apart, a mother and daughter come to terms with pivotal moments of their lives. Staged reading. By Salma Elwy.

TICK, TICK … BOOM — Ritz Theatre (Camden) April 1-3. Autobiographical musical about Jonathan Larson (author of RENT) as he navigates life in NYC and producing his musical “Superbia.”
